This thesis is concerned with the modern settlement of Hausa and Fulani, of mainly Nigerian origin, in what is now the Democratic Republic of Sudan and examines the process of social and economic change within-the communities founded by these settlers. It can therefore be divided into two parts: the first is a critical review of Hausa and Fulani immigration during the colonial period and furthermore, whilst attempting to explain this important phenomenon, provides an introduction to the second part which, in the specific context of the settlement established in 1906 by mainly Fulani groups at Maiurno near Sennar in Blue Nile Province, analyses the character of post-war change and social development. Hence, as well as giving an account of Hausa and Fulani immigration, this thesis aspires to be a contribution to the growing literature on the transformation of rural society, the nature of capital accumulation and the process of class formation amongst the peasantry in northern Sudan. Chapter One provides the historical background to the establishment of Maiurno and investigates the settlement of sedentarised Fulani groups along the Blue Nile from the end of the nineteenth century until the beginning of the 1930s.
